    Imago Dei: Metaphorical conceptualization of pictorial artworks within a participant-based framework.Amitash Ojha, Marianna Bolognesi & Fabio I. M. Poppi - 2020 - Semiotica 2020 (236-237):349-376.
    This article presents an exploratory analysis of the metaphoric structure of five artistic paintings within “Think aloud” protocols, in which a group of 14 English speakers with a low self-rated level of expertise in art and history of art expertise were asked to verbalize all their thoughts, ideas and impressions of the artworks. The main findings of this study can be summarized as follows: multiple interpretations for the same artwork are possible, the interpretations of the metaphorical structures described by the (...)

    Uncanny Resemblance: Words, pictures, and conceptual representations in the field of metaphor.Alessandro Cavazzana & Marianna Bolognesi - 2020 - Cognitive Linguistic Studies 7 (1):31-57.
    What is the relation between the three following elements: words, pictures, and conceptual representations? And how do these three elements work, in defining and explaining metaphors? These are the questions that we tackle in our interdisciplinary contribution, which moves across cognitive linguistics, cognitive sciences, philosophy and semiotics. Within the cognitive linguistic tradition, scholars have assumed that there are equivalent and comparable structures characterizing the way in which metaphor works in language and in pictures. In this paper we analyze contextual visual (...)

    Where words get their meaning: cognitive processing and distributional modelling of word meaning in first and second language.Marianna Bolognesi - 2020 - Philadelphia: John Benjamins.
    Words are not just labels for conceptual categories. Words construct conceptual categories, frame situations and influence behavior. Where do they get their meaning? This book describes how words acquire their meaning. The author argues that mechanisms based on associations, pattern detection, and feature matching processes explain how words acquire their meaning from experience and from language alike. Such mechanisms are summarized by the distributional hypothesis, a computational theory of meaning originally applied to word occurrences only, and hereby extended to extra-linguistic (...)

    The linguistic dimensions of concrete and abstract concepts: lexical category, morphological structure, countability, and etymology.Bodo Winter, Marianna Bolognesi & Francesca Strik Lievers - 2021 - Cognitive Linguistics 32 (4):641-670.
    The distinction between abstract and concrete concepts is fundamental to cognitive linguistics and cognitive science. This distinction is commonly operationalized through concreteness ratings based on the aggregated judgments of many people. What is often overlooked in experimental studies using this operationalization is that ratings are attributed to words, not to concepts directly. In this paper we explore the relationship between the linguistic properties of English words and conceptual abstractness/concreteness. Based on hypotheses stated in the existing linguistic literature we select a (...)
